The Moon in Aries Craves Interaction

During these hard times, we can feel quite lonely. Maybe that is why Aries wants us to reach out to our friends and family. It certainly doesn’t help that the air signs, Aquarius and Libra, are fanning the restless flames. This morning the moon in Aries forms a sextile with Saturn in Aquarius, motivating us to help our loved ones and our community. Later, the moon forms an opposition with Venus in Libra. This transit can enhance our feelings of isolation. 

The Moon Is Sextile Saturn at 7:00 AM

As we wake to greet the day, the moon in sanguine Aries forms a sextile with Saturn in compassionate Aquarius. This transit might have you dwelling on the health, safety, and overall well-being of your loved ones and your community. Thanks to Aquarius’ socially conscious nature, you may have an urge to physically feed, shelter, or protect them.

You could also be feeling wistful about loved ones and family or ancestors who are no longer with us. If that Aries energy is feeling abundant, public acts of service or demonstrations could be the answer. If you’re feeling introspective and melancholy, perhaps some time organizing photos or keepsakes could be healing.

The Moon Is Opposite Venus at 12:02 PM

Right as we are about to break for lunch, the moon in impatient Aries moves opposite of Venus in indecisive Libra. This can bring about an increased desire for love and affection, and an urge to go looking for it if it’s not readily available. We’re on the hunt—despite the consequences.

Aries’ passion can bring out your restless side. You may be enticed to form shallow connections. You might even be tempted to throw your typical standards or rules out the window in order to stave off loneliness. Which could be fun for a temporary fling, but don’t expect a lasting partnership to emerge from such a hasty choice.

You’re probably feeling more sensitive than normal. This opposition can throw off Libra’s usual steady nature. We’re prone to take things personally under this transit, and project our frustrations onto our loved ones. We could especially experience some irritability or moodiness if we don’t feel seen by a current partner. Be careful not to replace that affection you’re seeking with food, drink, or other substances.
